As the mother of a 5 year old, I have become so aware of how quickly time flies.  He reminds me daily of the joy and importance of storytelling through language as well as images.  Through the art of capturing moments in time, I hope to build your own unique collection of stories to cherish.

 “An amazing photography experience from start to finish! Our adventure began with a very informative welcome packet filled with helpful suggestions and outlining what to expect. Our family shoot was fun and our wishes were all fulfilled. Valerie is a very patient sweetheart with a knack for dealing with kids’ shenanigans. Our finished product was delivered beautifully and in a very timely manner. We have found our family photographer for life!”

​For Families and Couples
Your session will include up to 2 hours of shooting time at a prime location of your choice: field, farm, gardens, mountain top, your home.  Sessions may include some posing, but mostly authentic moments of connection with your family members.  Your session will be fun and relaxed all while embracing your family's natural rhythms so that the smiles and moments we capture are completely honest and emotive.  My services also include support with location suggestions, what to wear, and ideas for how to use your images.

Within days after your shoot, you will receive 1-3 "sneak peek" images via email and, with your permission, via my social media accounts.  Your private proofing gallery will be available 2 weeks post shoot.  Once you receive your gallery, you'll move forward with choosing the images you would like for your image collection.  With our hectic lives, it's important to me that your images don't end up on a storage drive found in the back of a drawer!  You are investing your time, money, and energy into this experience.  We'll work together to select beautiful images of your family to use as artwork for your home.  

Each collection includes a set of full resolution digital files and artwork for your home of varying sizes and quantity depending on the collection you purchase.  All collections include a Session Fee of $300, which is used as a deposit to secure your portrait schedule.
"Valerie was such a pleasure to work with and truly captured the special moments we wanted to remember from our wedding day. She has a real talent for capturing emotion, landscape, and lighting to bring together the perfect shot. From planning stages to day-of, Valerie's vision, intention, and dedication had us in good hands. Valerie's beautiful work, in both color and black and white, will not disappoint."
